The real conversation we need to have with people starting a business - with Jason Connell
I talk with one of my business heroes, Jason Connell about the real conversation we need to have with people who are thinking about starting their own business: not about first class flights and answering emails on a beach at Costa Rica, but about the money that won’t come in as soon as you hope, about your friends’ lives outpacing yours, about the risks of depression. And most of all - about the emotional fitness that such a life requires.

Freedom to experience the full intensity of emotion - with Dianne Allen
When you encounter an intensely emotional situation, to the point you can barely cope and you need a way out – your first step is to connect with your spiritual self, to meditate, to tap into your “gut feeling”. And from that place you look at the MEPSS model and decide which parts needs to be strengthen. When all parts are in an equilibrium, you’re much better equipped to solve the situation

Which Emotions are Good (or Bad) for Business? - with Naomi Dunford
Emotions always get in the way. It’s when we IGNORE our emotions  – that’s when all wheels fall off the bus. {Naomi}. In this rich conversation we discuss... - Emotions in business – when they propel us forward and when they paralyze us. - Feeling constantly under a microscope  - and  how the one that's looking is not necessarily outside your head - Systems in “linear realms” like launches (easy) and the challenge in “blue ocean” realms, with no defined rules (“makes me crazy”)  And tons more.
